Abstract :
[en] In this CALIDIE Colloquium, I will present ‘Nexus Analysis’ an interdisciplinary approach I have been using in different projects over the years. I will show how this approach is particularly useful for doing research seeking to impact the situation one studies and often implies working in partnership with researchers and practitioners from different horizons. I will discuss two examples applying this framework. The first case study will concentrate on the study of reconversion of professionals to new lines of work. The second case study will investigate reflections towards making a multilingual Higher Education programme more inclusive. Both case study presentations will be an opportunity to reflect about the conditions under which case studies might be useful from a practical and a theoretical standpoint. In closing the presentation, I hope to engage the participants in a more interactive dialogue around issues linked with inter-disciplinarity and mixed-methods approaches, theorizing, and axiomatic stances regarding values in doing science
